3.7/5 rDev -7%
Pours a dark brown color with a great sized off-white head, fades at a decent rate, not much lacing on the glass.
Smell is quite strong, huge pumpkin spice aroma which is surprising, I know this is a pumpkin beer but I figured the stout aspect might temper some of the spicing and it didn't one bit, some malt sweetness in the background.
Taste starts out briefly with a roasted malt front which is then overwhelmed with the pumpkin spice flavor, pumpkin flavor on its own is fairly mild, it's usually the spices added afterwards that most people recognize and this beer essentially tastes like roasted pumpkin pie, carbonation is medium-low with a good softness in the mouth.
The sweetness and the spices do tend to be cloying and strong, best shared with a friend since it may prove difficult to finish on my own.

Deliciously dark brew. The pumpkin is a bit rancid at first, but once your palate is saturated, it perfectly smooths away any bitterness, and adds that rich, squashy creaminess that fills out the mouth and make this a pleasure to drink.

From the 650 ml. bottle. Sampled on August 30, 2014 - Labor Day weekend. I do try to wait until after Labor Day to crack open pumpkins brews.
Deep dark brown to black pour with a modest tan head that becomes a ring.
Oh man - that aroma. Pumpkin spice, yes. But a rich dark sweet malt character to even it all out.
Medium to full body.
The taste? Were you expecting the best? Well, you will not be disappointed. Pumpkin spice, dark roasted malts, and mild hop finish. This is quite remarkable.
